Expirience with the Santa Cruz HIGHBALL R / C / 29

Santa Cruz HIGHBALL R / C / 29 Review The HIGHBALL R is a robust race bike. For long-distance use, you have the option of mounting three bottle cages. The geometry is moderate and makes for a balanced handling. The combination of a long top tube and low stack value will make you sit sporty on the Santa Cruz Racebike. If you set great value on high-quality shifting system there are other Racebike 3399 Euro with higher quality components. We like: 25 years warranty on the frame!
